Former LSU offensive tackle Andrew Whitworth suffered a torn left MCL and damage to the PCL during the LA Rams 23-16 victory over the Seattle Seahawks.
There is some hope that Whitworth might be able to return this season and he posted this upbeat message on his Instagram:
I’m so thankful! God has blessed me with such an amazing 15 years playing @nfl football. And now I get an opportunity to lead in a different way while also rehabbing myself back ready to ride with my teammates! I get a chance to put my leadership to test. Who am I in adversity? Is it really about more than just me? How hard can I push myself to return? What can I pour into my teammates from the sideline? What an amazing Opp! I’m so grateful for this opp and I can’t wait to attack it with all the passion I have for people who support me and the men I take the field with every week! I get a chance to be about all the things I stand for! Hope, Faith, Love, perseverance, toughness, selflessness, and a man of my words!
So thankful to my family, my friends, my teammates, and fellow athletes across many sports that have reached out! I won’t let you down! Let’s get it!
